 A110428 a(1) = 1 and a(2) = 2. Subsequent terms are generated like this: if a(m) is the last term available -- say a(2) -- then a(m+1) = a(m) * a(m-1), a(m+2) = a(m) * a(m-1) * a(m-2), ..., a(2*m-1) = a(m) * a(m-1) * a(m-2) * ... * a(2) * a(1), a(2*m) = a(2*m-1) * a(2*m-2), and so on. 2

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS By choosing appropriate values for a(1) and a(2), many such sequences can be generated. LINKS FORMULA From Petros Hadjicostas, Nov 13 2019: (Start) a(n) = a(n-1) * a(m) for n >= 3, where m = 2^(p+1) + 2 - n and p is the unique integer such that 2^p < n - 1 <= 2^(p+1), starting with a(1) = 1 and a(2) = 2. a(A000051(n)) = a(2^n + 1) = a(2^n) for n >= 1. a(A000051(n) + 1) = a(2^n + 2) = a(2^n + 1) * a(2^n) = a(2^n)^2 for n >= 1. log(a(n)) = A329474(n) for n >= 1. (End) EXAMPLE a(3) = a(2)*a(1) = 2. [Now a(3) is the last term available.] a(4) = a(3)*a(2) = 4. a(5) = a(3)*a(2)*a(1) = 4. [Now a(5) is the last term available.] a(6) = a(5)*a(4) = 16. a(7) = a(5)*a(4)*a(3) = 32. a(8) = a(5)*a(4)*a(3)*a(2) = 64. a(9) = a(5)*a(4)*a(3)*a(2)*a(1) = 64. [Now a(9) is the last term available.] a(10) = a(9)*a(8) = 4096. a(11) = a(9)*a(8)*a(7) = 131072. ... a(17) = a(9)*a(8)*...*a(1) = 134217728. [Now a(17) is the last term available.] a(18) = a(17)*a(16) = 18014398509481984.
